Red Sox's Chris Sale: Will make first start on March 6
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sale will make his first Grapefruit League spring start March 6 against the Astros, Scott Lauber of ESPN.com reports.

The southpaw has impressed his new skipper early on in spring and he will have plenty of time to get himself ready for the regular season and acclimated with his new club. Manager John Farrell hasn't yet announced a starter for Opening Day, but Sale is a strong candidate for the assignment.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Throws live BP session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale threw 30 pitches in a live batting practice session, his first one as a member of the Red Sox, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

Sale impressed Boston manager John Farrell who noted the left-hander's ability to hit various parts of the strike zone, while the pitcher emphasized that it's all about process at this stage of spring training and getting himself prepared for the regular season. Farrell hasn't declared any order to his rotation, but Sale is a strong candidate to start Opening Day.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Traded to Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The White Sox agreed to trade Sale to the Red Sox on Tuesday for four prospects, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

After the field was narrowed down to the Red Sox, Nationals and Braves, Boston ultimately won the Sale sweepstakes with a package headlined by Yoan Moncada and Michael Kopech. Sale finished in the top five in the AL Cy Young voting for the fourth consecutive season, posting a 3.34 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 233:45 K:BB. He's under team control for three more seasons with team options for 2018 and 2019.

White Sox's Chris Sale: Drops final start of season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sale (17-10) lost after allowing five runs on six hits and a walk with six strikeouts in five innings against the Twins on Sunday.

It only took one pitch for Sale to fall behind, as Byron Buxton sped around the bases for an inside-the-park home run after launching the lefty's first offering deep to center field. Sale also surrendered a conventional long ball to Miguel Sano in the third, bringing home three runs. The 27-year-old is still one of the American League's Cy Young front-runners after compiling a 3.34 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 5.18 K/BB in a career-high 226.2 innings, including an MLB-best six complete games.

White Sox's Chris Sale: Picks up 17th win against Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale (17-9) allowed three runs on eight hits and struck out seven over seven innings in a win Tuesday over Tampa Bay.

Sale has now thrown quality starts in all but one of his past nine starts and has walked either one or zero batters in all but two of those outings. However, Sale has been a bit susceptible to the home run battle in this stretch. He has now allowed seven home runs in those nine starts and 25 in 31 starts on the season as a whole. His 3.21 ERA ranks seventh in the American League, and if not for his troubles keeping the ball in the yard, Sale could be the leader himself.
